The Collection

All ODP bags are made tell a story, as companions of adventure which follow men and women from day through to night, for whom style is synonymous with quality.

Each style is considered in all of its aspects: function, form, weight and aesthetics.

Our story

Allison Nicole Hoeltzel founded Officina del Poggio in Bologna in 2014 intending to create a collection of timeless and essential leather bags.  

Originally from Texas, Allison has lived in Italy for the past 15 years, working in handbag design and development for many international brands.  Passing her days in the factories and tanneries, she was fascinated with the materials and methods used, but was disappointed to discover that most modern handbags use split leather and synthetic reinforcements, which don't last over time.   

After meeting her husband Marco and sharing with him this passion for good leather, quality crafstmanship, and a minimalist aesthetic, she built a collection inspired by traditional satchels, equestrian gear and Marco's vintage motorcycle bags. 

Officina del Poggio was born, taking the name from the magical place they call home in the hills of Bologna ("Officina" means workshop and "Poggio" means small hill), which they share with their two dogs.
